Starting at the 5:02 mark, Maggie Rogers plays the song “Alaska” live in concert at the Greek Theater in Berkeley, California on September 20, 2019. Alaska was originally released as a single in 2016 and then appeared on Maggie Rogers’ Now That The Light Is Fading EP in 2017. When she was a student at NYU’s Clive Davis Institute of Recorded Music, Rogers played the song for Pharrell Williams, who was teaching a masterclass there. A video of Williams’ emotional response to the song went viral and gave Rogers her big break.

Alaska lyrics:

I was walking through icy streams
That took my breath away
Moving slowly through westward water
Over glacial plains

And I walked off you
And I walked off an old me
Oh me, oh my, I thought it was a dream
So it seemed

And now, breathe deep
I’m inhaling
You and I, there’s air in between
Leave me be
I’m exhaling
You and I, there’s air in between
Ooh-hoo, ooh-hoo, ooh-hoo-ooh
Ooh-hoo-ooh
You and I, there’s air in between
Ooh-hoo, ooh-hoo, ooh-hoo-ooh
Ooh-hoo-ooh

Cut my hair so I could rock back and forth
Without thinking of you
Learned to talk and say
Whatever I wanted to

And I walked off you
And I walked off an old me
Oh me, oh my, I thought it was a dream
So it seemed

And now, breathe deep
I’m inhaling
You and I, there’s air in between
Leave me be
I’m exhaling
You and I, there’s air in between
Ooh-hoo, ooh-hoo, ooh-hoo-ooh
Ooh-hoo-ooh
Ooh-hoo, ooh-hoo, ooh-hoo-ooh
Ooh-hoo-ooh

Ooh-hoo, ooh-hoo, ooh-hoo-ooh
Ooh-hoo-ooh
You and I, there’s air in between
Ooh-hoo, ooh-hoo, ooh-hoo-ooh
Ooh-hoo-ooh
You and I, there’s air in between
